Concert Information

Some of Anders Hillborg’s earliest lessons in music were learnt while singing in choirs. At St Giles’ Cripplegate, the BBC Singers presents the first performance of a new choral work by the Swedish composer alongside some of his established favourites, including the simple song lined with mourning O Dessa Ögon and the spine-tingling surround-sound of the 16-part Mouyayoum, an immersive experience in itself.

Complementing Hillborg’s works, Ragnar Rasmussen and the Singers bring us the radiant and heartbreaking love songs by Hillborg’s compatriot Sven-David Sandström, a sample of Steven Stucky’s touching Cradle Songs and Olivier Messiaen’s cut-glass miniature O Sacrum Convivium.
